    School is almost over now and it would be a nice idea to leave your classmate a little something to remember you during summer and to wish them nice holidays…

    So, when I spotted these chocolate owles I thought they were the perfect gift.. cute and free!!!

    You just need small chocolate bars, print them, cut them and you are ready!!

    If you are able to use a computer and a software like Photoshop, you can even add the child’s name. Enjoy!

    Thanks to Lisa for this beautiful DYI project and for the ultra cute template.

    Few days ago Martina post a comment on my site… I became curious from the name of her blog so I went for a peek and I have to say her website is really cute.

    But that’s not the only thing… if you visit her site you will find some very interesting and useful idea for Christmas. If you like sewing as I do and you are always searching for interesting ideas and tutorilas, you might take a look at Confession of a sewing addict. For example… what do you think about this deer hat as a present for your children, your nephews, your friends? And what about a matching bib?

    Well, Martina created a beautiful¬†tutorial that you can also download as a free pdf. Cute, isn’t it? Her blog is also in english so go visit her for more details!

    In these last days I took back a bit my sewing machine.. unfortunately I am not able to dedicate to this activity as much time as I would like to,but days pass really fast and between my job and Nabiki I really have little time for everything else.

    It is my intention in any case to prepare a notebook to keep in time in where I will insert all the small sewing and crafting projects I am (and I will) working on, keeping also and eventually re-drawing all the scheme and patterns necessary to repeat them.. the idea behind is to give this notebook to Nabiki once she will be older just in case she wants to try some of them..

    So I bought a nice hard cover notebook and I sew for it a nice fabric cover… maybe in the future I will also add some decoration in the front facade, but for now it is already a step ahead…
